John Reachell, colored, while plowing in a field near Cairo, 111., was instantly killed by lightning from a clear sky.

"Bill" Scott, ex-Deputy United States Marshal and a desperate man, was shot .at Edmonton, Ky., Tuesday, in the County Court room in the second story of the Court House. Mr. Manning, from the other side of the Atlantic, expresses the belief that the President must have been very tired indeed when Senator Vest got the impression from him that he did not want another term. Theodore Roosevelt's remark relative to "the 'mendacious and ridiculous vanity of the Mugwumps" appears to have had the same effect on the busy brethren as the rocking of a bee hive when the honey-making season is at its height. The Des Moines Register notes that the increase in the long haul rate on the railroads is building up Dubuque, Davenport, Keokuk, Burlington and other Mississippi river towns. Dubuque, in particular, has. been benefited, and gives promise of entering on a new and rapid growth.

TKAIN ROBBEH1!. Successful Job by laws. Texas Out" MAY 1887. W. Jb\ ENSENGEB, Plain and Decorative AUSTIN, Tex., May 18—Information is received here that the Missouri Pocillc north-bound train, which left here at 8:45 to-night, was held up at McNeil, the juetipn of the Missouri Pacific and Austin and Northwestern roads. It is said that there were fifteen men in the party. They first captured the operator before tho arrival of the train and as soon as the train drew in, boarded it, attacking the engineer and express messenger. The express was robbed but the amount taken is not ascertained. The mails were not toucCeu. The passengers were held up and a considerable amount was taken, one man losing a gold watch and chain and another a diamond pin. Two passen gers were seriously wounded. Train Wreckers Shot. ST. Louis, Mo.,May 18—A special from the City of Mexico says: A week ago d, train on the Mexican National railroad ran over and killed a Mexican near Patzcuaro. The friends of the dead man undertook to retaliate and put a big rock on a curve. The engine of a passenger train struck it and an American engineer was injured and a Mexican fireman killed. The jefe politico sent a squad of Mexican gendarmes with instructions to bring in every person suspected of any complicity whatever or any information. Thirty- three arrests were made. The investigation resulted in selection of three victims and sentence was immediately passed. Shortly after sunrise yesterday morning the three were marched to the soene of the disaster, stood up before an adobe wall, and a file of soldiers ten paces distant fired a volley at them. The men fell at the first fire. A. sergeant stepped forward to the bodies, put a revolver close to each head, and blew out their brains. The corpses lay for some time where they fell, as a -warning against more train wrecking, and were buried near the scene of the wreck. 411 WORK PROMPTLY ATTKNDKD TO AT LOWEST TEEMS. OFFICE!

SPBINGKIBLP, 111., May 18—The House Alien bill, which was on the calendar as a'special order, was postponed for one week. The joint House resolution to appoint a committee of _nine to investigate as to the extent of pleuro-pneu- inonia in Cook county and report to the General Assembly as early as possible was read and adopted. The committee on Municipalities reported the (Chicago) House drainage bill favorably. Senator Gibbs wanted the bill substituted for tho Senate bill. No action was taken, the bill standing as it came from the committee. FISTICUFFS. Senators Crawford and Gibbs got into a controversy over the matter, Crawford claiming the bill had never been considered [in the colnmitteo. They finally came to blowa, tfut \yere soon separated. ' , • >' Senator Ogden succeeded 'in hav-i ing Campbell's Pure JVhisky bill ad-; vanced to second reading. The Senate then took up the Revenue bill for consideration. HOUSE. . In the House this morning the joint resolution which was introduced at the first of the session proposing to appoint a commission to revise the State School law was called up on special order. The House refused to adopt the -resolution by a vote of 42 to 81. The greater part of the morning session was occupied in discussion upon the Medical Praotias bill, which has passed the Senate aofi has reached the order of third reading in tho House. Tho feature of the bill is that it confers additional authority upon the State Board of Health in granting licenses to practice medicine and passing upon the genuineness of diplomas, as to whether they are from legally chartered medical institutions. A number of speeches were made, most of which were in opposition to the measure. Tho bill failed to pans—G8 to 48. Miner Killed by Curs.
